i agree. but if you check out who made the ad....yup, hispanic people. cringe.

no need to knock the creatives/ethnicity of the people who made the ad. they're working hard on their craft just like you. only difference is you know their name and they don't know yours. so be fair and tell them what you don't like or how to make it better. i think maybe the issue i have with the campaign is that the use of the colour swatch coming from inspiration from the bigger world feels a little played out to me for paints. is there another idea for paint that might be fresher. perhaps the line could have been written without overtly targeting spanish speaking people. i get more of a tropical vibe from the colours and think caribbean. maybe the term "hispanic" is confusing since i think people use that a lot but it means many things to many different people.

but as i said before, the execution isn't bad. much better than 99% of the ads done out in the world so not bad.

hope my comments help.

Do ethnicitys have colors?

Well a puerto rican wedding certainly has lots of colors. None of em match but not for a lack of trying.
